I’ve had a stomach flu since Monday afternoon now; and honestly, I’m fresh out of ways to pretend that I’m not ill.
The worst part, of course, is using the sick days I’ve accumulated at work for such a thing as actually being sick.
What kind of crap is that?
Generally speaking, I prefer to hang on to my sick days over the course of the year, saving them up for a lovely three-day stint some time in February or March or so – you know, just about the time everyone in my part of the world starts making collages of pictures clipped from travel magazines, grinning, sun-burnt wankers frolicking in tropical climes…
And now I’ve blown it.
Wait – would it be feasible that I be “sick” – as opposed to sick – again in March?
A question for minds clearer than mine.
